Desert Wheels, by Bryan Blow
Desert Wheels, by Bryan Blow, subtitled 'An illustrated history of No.51 MT Company/Squadron MEAF 1942-56'

Published by Woodfield in 2007, 120 pages. Paperback (N4455)

From the rear side cover: On 15th May 1942 Flying Officer V.D. Fletcher, a Rhodesian, was taken a few miles out from Heliopolis, shown a square of open desert with four pegs marking the corners and told to 'Get on with it.'

This was to mark the beginning of the most famous Mechanical Transport Company in the Royal Air Force....

Although little has been written previously about '51' - the men of this unit did magnificent work during the North African Campaign and made a significant contribution to Rommel’s eventual defeat. This book tells their story, in both words and pictures.

The condition of the book is generally excellent. The covers are clean and bright, the spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound - the book looks like it has never been read!
